30-minute radio program for April 15, 2014. First of two parts. A classic talk from 1999 by political scientist Michael Parenti. It's just as illuminating today as it was then--and often funny, too. It is titled, "Globalization: the New Imperialism." In this week's segment, Parenti shows how the Western colonial powers UN-developed the "Third-World"--increasing poverty there in order to enrich private corporations at home. Indeed, U.S. foreign policy seems aimed largely at... Topics: Michael Parenti, imperialism, colonialism, capitalism, empire
30-minute radio program for August 27, 2013. Part 2 of a brilliant and witty speech by Progressive political scientist Michael Parenti, delivered in 1994. Twenty years later, the talk is every bit as cogent and relevant as it it was then This week, Parenti shows that empires are about class and wealth, not nationalism. Empires are ruinously expensive, but the expense is paid by the 99% in order to make the 1% even richer. The costs include not only dollars but also environmental damage, the...

30-minute radio program for August 20, 2013. A brilliant and witty speech by Progressive political scientist Michael Parenti, delivered in 1994. This week, in Part 1, Parenti argues that the United States is an imperial power-that it has an empire (a claim few were making back in 1994). But the goal of maintaining an empire is not national glory: the goal is increasing the profits of the Fortune 500 corporations. He shows how "neoimperialism" has replaced old-fashioned... Topics: Michael Parenti, imperialism, neoimperialism, Grenada, Cuba
Talk by Michael Parenti author of ''The Assassination of Julius Caesar: A People's History of Ancient Rome'' given April 5, 1998 in Seattle. Topics: michael, parenti, assassination, julius, caesar, people, history
30-minute radio program for October 28, 2014. Low bandwidth version. With the US again escalating its war against Iraq, many have been decrying the "failure" of US foreign policy in the Middle East. But a "failure" to the majority may be a "success" to the elite, who often profit from policies. In fact, the government may create these policies--not by mistake--but for the purpose of aiding that elite despite the harm done to everyone else. In this... Topics: Naomi Klein, Michael Parenti, foreign policy, climate change, Iraq
30-minute radio program for January 10, 2012. First of 2 parts. Progressive political scientist MICHAEL PARENTI is in fine form in this recent speech, which brings together his key insights about the practice and purpose of the US Empire and imperialism. Some of Parenti's main points will be familiar to long-time fans. Here they are made with fine wit and good specific examples from current events. He argues that the purpose of our imperialism is not national glory but rather the further... Topics: Michael Parenti, empire, imperialism, Oakland, Wall Street, police
30-minute radio program for April 22, 2014. Second of two parts. A classic talk from 1999 by political scientist Michael Parenti. It's just as illuminating today as it was then--and often funny, too. In this week's segment, Parenti shows that imperialism's current form is "multilateral free-trade agreements" such as NAFTA and GATT. [And let's add the TPP, currently being hatched.] These draconian anti-democratic treaties give corporations the power to veto any national laws that they... Topics: Michael Parenti, imperialism, capitalism, corporations, free trade, WTO, GATT
30-minute radio program for December 2, 2014. More of the classic talk by political scientist MICHAEL PARENTI, delivered in Berkeley, California, in 1993. Let's not dismiss"conspiracy theories." Parenti argues that conspiracies are real and common--one tool among the many that the elite use to advance their class interests. This week he discusses more "conspiracy theories" that have been proven true--including the successful attempt to reverse the US's movement towards... Topics: Michael Parenti, conspiracy, conspiracy theory, class, class power, Nicaragua
A show slightly dated by the Bush references, but the new regime that pilots Americaâs Imperial Juggernaut has barely altered course. It includes sections of a Noam Chomsky talk weâve played before (sorry for the repetition), as well as Howard Zinn, Michael Parenti, Malcolm X and music by the likes of Billy Bragg, Utah Philips, Saul Williams, Masada, DJ Spooky, Fela Kuti and others.

30-minute radio program for July 16, 2013. In a telephone interview on April 6, 2010, Left-leaning political scientist Michael Parenti discusses his book, God and His Demons (Prometheus Books)--a survey of the woes caused in the name of, and by, Organized Religion. In this first of two parts, Parenti talks about rampant child sexual abuse by the Christian (and other) clergy and the coverup thereof--and now, at the Vatican, the coverup of the coverup. He talks about the venality of the... Topics: Buddhism, Christianity, God and His Demons, Michael Parenti, Tibet
30-minute radio program for November 25, 2014. Another in our series of classic talks by political scientist MICHAEL PARENTI. Parnti spoke in Berkeley, California, in 1993. Long before 9-11, Americans had been trained to dismiss any claim of concerted wrongdoing among the elites as a crackpot "conspiracy theory." Parenti argues that conspiracies are real, logical, normal, maybe inevitable--just one tool among many that the wealthy and powerful use to advance their own interests as... Topics: Michael Parenti, conspiracy, conspiracy theory, class, class power
30-minute radio program for July 31, 2012. Language doesn't just reflect your understanding of reality: it SHAPES it. The Pentagon (and its pet, the State Department) knows this and creates language to mislead us about what it is actually doing. First I and then MICHAEL PARENTI (in a fine talk from the 1990s) expore how it works. Of particular interest: Parenti's debunking of the "Gaddafi-is-a-menace" rhetoric, ca. 1990. (The government then forgot about Gaddafi for 30 years. Then he... Topics: Pentagon, propaganda, language, Englsh composition, Michael Parenti, Gaddafi, Libya

30-minute weekly radio program for March 2, 2010. Alternative installment title: "Hannibal Lecter to Replace Dodd in Senate." First of 2 installments on psychopaths in power. Psychopaths are quite common. Most are not hands-on killers. They differ from us in their lack of conscience, inability to imagine others' pain, and total lack of remorse for the harm they cause. With these advantages, they rise to the top of hierarchies; and hierarchies become top-heavy with psychopaths. Which...

30-minute weekly radio program for July 20, 2010. When the President institutes a policy that hurts most Americans, alleged critics always explain the decision as a character flaw. Bush is a "dry drunk" who is competing with his father. That's why we invaded Iraq. Obama is "too trusting" of "experts" such as those at BP (says Frank Rich). That's why he's done next to nothing about the catastrophe in our Gulf. Right. Drs. Kenneth Dowst and Michael Parenti argue,...

30-minute weekly radio program for February 22, 2011. No big surprise in the answer. Vinnie "the Chin" Gigante couldn't hold a candle to Lloyd "Mr. Blankfein" Blankfein, *Capo de tutti capi* of the Goldman Sachs Mob. But the specific examples here should entertain, amuse, and p*** you off. We feature (1) a preposterous news story (every phrase a cliche') about how the cops have (yet again) broken the back of the Mafia in the Northeast. (I've been reading this story since...

30-minute weekly radio program for November 2, 2010. The people of the Third World are kept poor--by institutions of the "global North"--so that our very rich may become still richer. British journalist JOHANN HARI argues this case, using the recent history of Haiti as example. In a talk from the early 1990s, MICHAEL PARENTI concurs, offering examples from Haiti and several other countries. I suggest that the Powers That Be are pushing the U.S.A in the same direction as Haiti.... Topics: Haiti, capitalism, neoliberalism, Third World, imperialism, Michael Parenti, Bob and Ray, Johann...
30-minute weekly radio program for April 26, 2011. The country is in a mess, economically, politically, in terms of civil liberties ... you name it! Well, it's not that nobody warned us where we were heading! Three prophets of years past combine wit, humor, and insight: (1) Comedian George Carlin (2 routines from the 1990s) discusses the exploitation by the rich of everyone else, our non-functioning democracy, the falseness of The American Dream, class warfare, "divide and conquer,"...

Prisoners of war is political and social commentary in the form of a song. This song was written by: OUTTHERE and R. Sorensen. It is part of an effort to activate people for the purpose of taking initiatives in their cities and states to find ways to change what is obviously wrong with our system. The song is the point of view of OUTTHERE, and complete agreement is not required to go further, but if the song sparks an interest, you can visit his site and the page which is dedicated to the song....

When Oliver Stones movie JFK opened in December 1991 a huge PR campaign was mobilized against the film. Even progressives spoke out. Noam Chomsky wrote in support of the Warren Commission's findings in contrast Michael Parenti gave one of his highly acclaimed talks criticizing the lone assassin theory. The bitter questions that haunted defenders and critics alike was whether government agencies of a democratic country would do such a thing as assassinate an elected President. (TUC lecture...
